Abstract:

If personal and national identity is often constructed in terms of place,
how do our identities and values change as places themselves are
transformed? What happens to the spaces in which we live as societal values
and identities change? These questions can be asked of almost any
discipline, whether one is taking a photograph or mapping a literary
topography, tracing linguistic change in a geographic region or language's
importance to our conception of a political territory, building a house or
place of worship on a physical plot of land, or constructing them from
words on a page or computer software.

Few places are ever uniquely our own. We share them, knowing that the
geographic points stabilizing our own identities serve, on their reverse
side, to support an entirely different set of meanings. We project our
cultural (or disciplinary) markers onto landscapes which are already hardly
blank, but full of others' meanings. This collection brings together
scholars from a range of disciplines including literary and cultural
studies, history, political science, architecture, anthropology,
photography and art history, communications, sociology, lexicography,
linguistics, tourism management and theoretical psychoanalysis, each
shedding light on how place is both a transforming subject and a
transformed object.
